Green and red monolayer tubulin cells. Webinar

Advanced Models of Parkinson's Disease

Watch this webinar to learn about neural progenitor cells (NPCs), ideal in vitro models as they can be induced to differentiate down all three neural lineages. In this webinar we will focus on the Parkinson’s disease-derived NPCs, detailing their neural biomarker expression profiles during dopaminergic neuron differentiation and validating their use in toxicological studies.

Best of Both Worlds

hTERT-immortalized primary cells are genetically modified such that the cells exhibit the growth characteristics of a continuous cell but maintain the physiology of a primary cell. This webinar features our broad portfolio of hTERT-immortalized primary cells and provides application data to illustrate how these cell models can easily be incorporated into your workflow.

Creating Synthetic Protein-Protein Interaction Networks and Implications for Endogenous Network Discovery

While the regulatory regimes to build networks in synthetic biology has grown from transcription to also include protein or RNA modalities, circuits comprising only protein-protein interactions have yet to be produced. In this webinar, Dr. Mishra discusses the design and optimization of networks comprising solely protein-protein interactions.

CRISPR Cas9-engineered 3-D Tissue Culture Models of Drug-resistant Melanoma

This webinar discusses the MEK1 Q56P Mutant-A375 Isogenic Cell Line, which is resistant to both MEK and BRAF inhibitors and sensitive to combination therapies targeting both upstream and downstream elements of the Ras/Raf-MAPK signaling pathway. Learn how this CRISPR-edited isogenic model is ideal for screening and evaluating novel therapeutics and combination treatments targeting multidrug-resistant melanomas.

Epithelial-Mesenchymal Transition Reporter Cell Lines

Epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and its reverse (MET) are physiological mechanisms implicated in cancer metastasis. Watch this webinar to learn how CRISPR/Cas9 genome-editing technology was applied to develop a number of RFP- or GFP-tagged reporter cell lines to study EMT and MET phenomena.

The Importance of Authenticated Viral Standards in Respiratory Disease Research and Therapeutic Development

The continual emergence of deadly respiratory viruses underscores the importance of effective diagnostic assays, vaccines, and antiviral therapies. In this webinar, we summarize the impact of respiratory viral disease on global health initiatives and discuss the importance of authenticated standards in the development of effective treatment and prevention methods.

Reclassification of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis Complex (MTBC) Species as Mycobacterium tuberculosis

In this webinar, a microbiology expert from ATCC discusses the techniques used to examine species in the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex. Using phylogenomic techniques to compare the type strains of these species, we discovered that all of these “species” are, in fact, M. tuberculosis.
